At this time of year, every year, all of us have created a draft board.  How we think the draft will fall out.  Most of us also have a selection of players from that draft board that are the ones they especially like.  These are My Guys.

I would like to issue a challenge.  Go back through your records for every year, and find:  A - your best draft prospect, B - your worst draft prospect, C - any of your prospects the Colts took, D - a late round prospect of yours that blossomed.

 

I'll start out with mine:

 

2015

Best - Andrus Peat, T, Stanford (Saints #13 overall, 3 pro bowls)

Worst - Reese Dismukes, C, Auburn (undrafted, went nowhere)

Colts - Zack Hodges, OLB, Harvard (UFA, didn't stick)

Late - Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana (Falcons #73)

2016

Best - Ezekiel Elliot, RB, Ohio St (Cowboys #4 overall, 3 pro bowls)

Worst - Su'a Cravens, S, USC

Colts - Ryan Kelly, C, Alabama (Colts #18 overall)

Late - Joe Schoebert, LB, Wisconsin (Browns #99, pro bowl)

2017

Best - Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson (Texans #12, 3 pro bowls)

Worst - tie John Ross, WR, Ohio St / Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama

Colts - none

Late - Dan Feeney, G, Indiana (Chargers #71 overall)

2018

Best - Quentin Nelson, G, Notre Dame (#6 overall, 3 pro bowls)

Worst - Arden Key, DE, LSU

Colts - Quentin Nelson, G, Notre Dame

Late - Kyzir White, S/LB, West Virginia

2019

Best - AJ Brown, WR, Mississippi

Worst - Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson

Colts - Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple / Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio St

Late - Terry McLauren, WR, Ohio St

2020

Best - CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma

Worst - Denzell Mims, WR, Baylor / Calvin Throckmorton, T, Oregon

Wilkins?   The DT who went 13th to Miami?

 

I could easily be wrong, but I thought he’s done pretty good for the Dolphins?

 

Any chance you’re mixing him up with the other Clemson DL drafted that year, Ferrell, who surprisingly went to the Raiders 4th overall?   It’s my understanding he’s been mostly a disappointment?  


I haven’t double checked anything yet.  Mostly going from memory and that could be my big mistake here....   :peek:

It may just be a reflection of my own expectations for the guy, and how badly I wanted the Colts to take him.  I was certain that he would be an impact sack machine from the 3-technique position, with 8 to 12 sacks per year.  And it hasn't turned out that way.

He certainly is a starter, with tackles and TFL's to show for it.

For what it may be worth...   he’s listed at 315, so I’m wondering if he’s not playing the 3-tech?   Maybe he’s the Nose for Miami?  Or put another way,  maybe he’s the Vince Wilfork for the Dolphins?   Just thinking out loud....   I don’t know?

Apparently, they're playing him at 5-technique 3-4 left defensive end.

    • This is the upside of drafting and maintaining a high character team.   The players and Ballard an Reich have come to an agreement  that satisfies both sides.    Win-win.   The roughly 10 teams who have opted OUT of OTA’s because of a lack of an agreement between management and players likely wish they could trade places with the Colts.      We have leaders not followers.   We are trying to protect all the players not just veterans.  When you opt out of practice the guys hurt the most are the young players trying for a roster spot.  Injured players who are trying to reclaim their previous form.    Today, it’s good to be a Colts fan.   Our organization sees the Big Picture.   Hopefully this leads to better days ahead. 
    • Only part of our schedule that is consider easier is based on Jags and Texans (4 games) and the Jets. As such that knock our SoS. But if you look at the majority of our schedule most of the teams we are to face are 10 win teams last year, or expected to be in contention for Playoff (Raiders, Cards, 49ers). That is pretty much why
    • Not really, much, I think the dude swung like a little ____. Willie Mays Hayes has a better swing. But I think people that do that crap are incredibly stupid and have SDE, I over here never been in a fight, but that is because I am bigger than a lot of people, and have enough swing to break a jaw easily if I ever needed to.  I think the dude should be banned from all Major League parks
    • The Colts do play 6 of the top 9 ranked teams as it stands today.   
    • Favorite - Hooker, Q, Leonard, Pittman, Campbell. Agree with @Supermanthat Hooker had the chance to be special but his career got derailed by injuries. I still feel like if he gets in the right situation and scheme he can be very good and revive his career. Loved Q(my best player in that draft), loved Leonard(compared to others)... I had him as an early second and he was picked early second, but compared to other people not liking the pick I was pretty high on Leonard. Loved both Pittman and Campbell picks, lets see if they make me look foolish. Loved Hines... loved the Tell pick especially when I learned we were going to try to switch him to CB.    Least favorite - didn't love Braden Smith's pick(had him ranked as a 3d rounder, we picked him early second). Didn't love Tyquan Lewis pick... massive reach. Didn't love Khari Willis pick. Thought both Rock and Banogu were reaches, but not huge ones. Zach Banner was a horrible pick I thought.
